iProperty UK for iPhone app – review

From time to time we like to look at prices of houses in London, EU, to snatch some interesting ones. Obviously iPhone is, usually, a nice way to browse information, so we like to use iPhone for that purpose. Previously we have published a review of of MyOwnHome – an app for property searching in UK and now comes another one: iProperty UK.

First thing that annoyed us in this app is that you cannot select both 2 and 3 bedrooms at the same time:

iPhone Fast & Furious app features Blu-ray integration


07-20-09universalipodIf you own an iPhone/iP od Touch and love the Fast & Furious movie, Universal is giving you a whole new reason to look forward to the upcoming Blu-ray special edition of their movie. Their planning to come out with a Fast & Furious app that will let viewers control 360-degree models of cars in a Virtual Car Garage using their iPhone, but that’s not the end of it. They’ve also got movie control, ancillary video content download, and even playback of annotations on your iPhone lined up for later release to complement new Blu-ray releases to provide a truly drool-worthy digital movie experience. We’re not sure though when they plan to roll these apps out, but it’s nice to know that they’ve included some of the more successful technological wonders of today such as the iPhonein their plans. Will Palm Pre and Android users also get the same treats down the road? One can only hope.

Samsung Omnia HD unboxing video

The Samsung Omnia HD was first announced at MWC back in February. There was some initial confusion surrounding the Omnia HD. It’s predecessor, the Omnia, is a Windows Mobile powered device and it was assumed that the Omnia HD would have the same OS which sadly (as a WinMo user) it does not, favouring Symbian instead.

First impression of the Omnia HD is that it’s a BIG handset. It’s physically larger than the iPhone, noticeably longer and significantly thicker. There’s a good reason for the size though and that’s all down to the fantastic 3.7" OLED screen. In fact the screen is unlike anything I’ve seen before. Sure, I’ve used devices with OLED screens before but this one is probably the best I’ve seen. As I try to describe in the unboxing video below, the brightly coloured areas on the screen, especially within the menus really stand out and have an almost 3D quality while the richness of colour is also amazing. OLED displays are typically quite poor when it comes to bright outdoor conditions as they are not transflective, the screen on the Omnia HD performs quite well outside though.

I wont spoil James’ review (which will be online soon) by going in to much more detail about the Samsung Omnia HD, after all this is supposed to be the unboxing and introduction. Suffice to say that if you can get past the fact that the Omnia HD is among the largest handsets on the market then it’s definitely going to be worth a look!
